I'll do this kind of out of order, I'm pretty tired but I know a lot of people wanted info....so here it is.

Merch was fuckin expensive for Slayer, Mayhemfest and all the headliners etc. (like 30-35$ for a T shirt.)
I got a Cannibal shirt, they have all the shirts on their webstore plus an Evisceration Plague tour shirt, all are 21$. The comic/CD is 20$ and comes with a wristband so you can get priority in meeting the band. I don't know about any of the other bands.

There was initially a very long line, but these best buy people gave me and my friends free "vip" passes for singing up for their rewards program (which was totally worth it because we got in with a 10 person line in about 5 minutes)
Went straight to the Cannibal booth and got an Eaten Back to Life shirt, then the Hot Topic and got the comic. Drank some rockstar, then went to meet Cannibal. That was awesome, but I guess they switched Behemoth to earlier in the day, which sucked because they were one of the reasons I went. Missed half their set. Nergal wears a new mask and the bass player spits blood, no bible tearing. They are always great though.
I didn't really pay attention to many of the other bands, but I sat through BDM and JFAC in the front so I could get a front spot for Cannibal. Cannibal were amazing, but they had a pretty short set. I think the crowd got mor e into them then anyone else.
The rest of the time between CC and Slayer was spent just goin around and talking to people.
Slayer were pretty good. I don't love them, and it was sad that they didn't play anything of SNM. Oh well. They have a lot of energy and everyone loved them. They had lots of fire and "evil" looking things (pentagrams etc), but it didn't really work and looked kinda cheesy. But maybe that's the point.
I made it about half way through Manson's set and gave up, I don't care at all about him.
That was brief,but I'm tired. If you've got specific questions about anything I'll see if I can remember.

Few Questions: (sorry haha)

Are all 2nd Stage Bands doing signing? And if so, are they free?

When was Cannibal Corpse's signing?

How badass is the comic? hehe

That's all man, thanks for the post!!!! :rocker: :rocker:

A. As far as I know, yes. They are free, but for KSE and CC (maybe others, don't know) if you buy their CD (for Cannibal the comic/CD) you get wristbands, and get priority. They hurry you along though, so no time for photos.
Actually, my friend and I were first in line, and before the signing started he asked Pat if he could get a picture, Pat said yes. For the picture my friend touched his nose. Yeah, it was weird to experience.

B. 3:00 for us.

C. It's kinda cool. I mean the novelty value is worth more than anything. It's not bad by any means, but I kinda expected more from the art with Vincent Locke doing it. The first 5 pages are porn, the rest is guys killing chicks in various ways.

Awesome review, man. Check the Tentative Mayhem Set Times thread for some info on the setlists.

Also: I hope CC keep changing up their shit. It's going to be AWESOME.

Here's a question: If I already have Evisceration Plague, should I get the Comic/CD combo? O:

If you are really into Cannibal, are really into comics, or reeeallly want to be the first to meet them then yes.
Otherwise, I dunno.

I forgot to add how disappointing Angel of Death was.
Tom didn't even try to scream. What the fuck is that? It doesn't make it a bad song....but that's the most iconic part of it. Actually, Tom didn't do ANY of his "classic screams"

Alright...

+Cannibal's set is correct. I got the setlist (Signed by Alex. :p) They were supposed to play A Skull Full Of Maggots before Hammer, but didn't...

+Slayer also played Born Of Fire, Hell Awaits, Ghosts Of War.

+Behemoth opened with Slaves Shall Serve

He can't really hit those notes anymore. Sometimes he can try it.

Idk if we can post links to other forums here but check the Mayhem Forums, there's a thread for all setlist, times, merch, etc. info.

There were people at the front when Cannibal ended, and one of the tech dudes threw the setlist and a security guard grabbed it. Everyone was yelling, "Me! Me!", and I was behind all of them. He tossed it and I caught it. And I was literally one person away from catching Paul's drumhead that he threw out into the audience. Damn! :cool:

How were the second stages set up, same as last year? or what

impropagation666
07-13-2009, 03:54 PM
Don't know how they did it last year, but the Jagermeister Stage and Hot Topic Stage were pretty much next to each other. So when one band ended, the band on the other stage would start immediately.
